They Came From the Stars I Saw Them mixed sweet British pop leanings with heroic doses of experimental rock. The group formed in 1999 and featured a revolving cast of characters, including Alexi Star, Horton Jupiter, Naomi Star, Mars Reacher, Giles Star, Daniel Star, and Keith Star; at times their ranks number up to 20 people. As the band name suggests, They Came From the Stars I Saw Them’s surreal, Canterbury prog-inspired sound was inspired by an alleged alien visitation, a theme set forth on their 2001 debut 10″ for Lo Recordings ‘Beer of the Gods’.
